Candler Black Church Studies will welcome Dr. McKinnis as the 2023 Sankofa Scholar for a J-term course January 3-7, 2023.  This seminar will deal with Black being within the context of existential absurdity and Black theology's response to such absurdity.  The seminar will engage questions of fugitivity, afro-pessimism, and hope via a religious studies and theological lens and questions of the human, Black being, and freedom as they emerge within Black religious thought and Black studies.
